Lost administrator access after enabling SAML in SonarQube

  • SonarQube Version
  • It is set up on an EC2 instance
  • Ability to administer the platform without having to use the local Admin account
  • Removed and added the permissions back for our administer groups, added global permissions to administer groups, created a new group and provided it admin permissions, and tried to create names that match groups in SonarQube with AD Groups in Azure AD.


Welcome to the community!

:warning: Make sure you upgrade to SonarQube v9.9 LTS soon, not only to benefit from our Best LTS Ever™, but because soon we will systematically ask users to upgrade when they ask questions about earlier versions of SonarQube, which are now considered unsupported. :smiley:

It sounds like you turned on group mapping and you’re not in the SAML groups you’ve granted global admin to.
